or not they could keep their healthcare and this is suddenly discovered and blown up and said don't worry about it, these are bad apple insurerrers. you can do away with those policies. we can get you new ones. the more serious thing here is, really, this is a manifest act of incompetence on the part of the administration. but more seriously it goes to his credibility, which goes to character, which goes to integrity. last week, the president of the united states left office because he had failed to tell the truth about a major matter we are told three years mislead presidential the people people. people were told you can keep your doctors and insurance. they were not telling the truth. they were systematically deceiving the american people. i don't know how you lead a country after you have done that. >> so what -- as he sits here tonight in his second term having been reelected what difference does it make to him? >> you know, in the last -- that's when you get when i point out the arrogance. he is sitting up there in boston and you know what he is saying to himself? so what if he is asked about

. >> millions of americans are visiting healthcare.gov, which is great news. unfortunate unfortunately, the site was only designed to handle six users at the time. >> they revealed the website wait times are getting dramatically better, though it's interesting on monday, the president will be addressing his political organization ofa on health care, a sign he still needs to rev up his political base. >> ed, thank you. >> ultimately, all of the obama care problems are not about politics but about people. tonight, senior national correspondent john roberts introduces us to some who are facing life-changing decisions because of the new law. >> betsy could be the poster child for the unintended consequences of obama care. >> i was very happy with my plan. but then i got the letter saying it was no longer available and i would need to choose a new one. >> her plan was dropped because it didn't include maternity care. she's 52, her son is 24, and she doesn't plan to have more kids. to replace the coverage she has, her premiums would go up from $454 a month to $871. her options on the obama care websit
about watching these hearings. they're all out of healthcare.gov, you worked on trying to do big projects. what was your takeaway from the hearing today? >> my takeaway is that we have a congress that is dangerously illiterate when it comes to technology issues. i mean, looking at this thing as a programmer and technologist, it was rather like watching people who can't read or write trying to be a book critic. i had no fundamental on what was even good or bad, it was baffling. >> what did you see that emerged -- seems to me, republicans have moved past criticisms of that. yet, that seems to be the implementation order that this law needs to get over. >> it is interesting for sort of fiscal conservatives to move on, and worry about this issue, whether or not people can keep their health insurance. you know, the system that we use called the federal procurement process, in order to buy and build healthcare.gov is broken. and that is responsible for $500 billion a year of spend by the federal government. >> wait, i'm sorry -- $500 billion a year? >> yes, a half a trillion dollars a
, millions of americans are already benefitting, and they're benefits that are not tied to healthcare.gov. so madam secretary, let's clarify what's working despite healthcare.gov. is it correct to say that many of the improvements that the aca makes to employer coverage and to medicare where the vast majority of americans receive their coverage are not dependent on healthcare.gov? >> that's correct. >> so the delays and problems with healthcare.gov do not affect the millions of individuals thanks to the aca who no longer have to worry about lifetime monetary caps on their coverage that previously seventh them to bankruptcy? >> that's absolutely true. i think the quote that the president was quoted recently saying, if you have health care, you can -- you don't have to sign up for the new marketplace, was referring to the large portion, the 95% of insured americans whose plans are solid, stay in place, and move forward. >> i understand the frustration with the website. what i don't understand is why people are not similarly outraged by the lack of medicaid coverage in many of our states. do you
today and your testimony. i too am frustrated with the flawed rollout of healthcare.gov, i do appreciate your long standing commitment to improving the health care options for all americans and fixing this website quickly. i think it's important to note that in my home state of california and other states as well, the new exchange marketplace, we call it covered california, is working. rates -- constituents are finding that rates are as much as 29% less than those that they found on the marketplace last year. i'm thankful my constituents now have this option. as i look around to complement takes nationwide, it seems clear to me that political decisions in individual states have really made the difference for consumers. the governors and state legislators that embrace this law are delivering for the communities, but those elected who are trying to ignore the opportunities presented and continue to throw up roadblocks both here in congress and in state legislatures should not seem surprised that there are significant bumps along the way. this seems to me to be completely disingenuous. havi
a new day has finally come. in these early weeks access to healthcare.gov has been a miserably frustrating experience for many americans, including many who have waited years, in some cases their entire lives for the security of health insurance. i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch. so let me say directly to these americans. you deserve better. i apologize, i'm accountable to you, and i'm committed to earning your confidence back by fixing the site. we're working day and night and will continue until it's fixed. we have recently added new management talent, adzdy shunnal technical expertise and a new general contractor to manage fixes across the system in two brood categories. performance, which deals with speed and reliability, and function which deals with bugs and problems in the system. our extensive assessment has determined that healthcare.gov is fixable. and i want to health line a couple of improvements. we now have more users successfully processing accounts. instead of the some users seeing a blank screen at the end of the application process
you. one thing i will say we blew it on the roll out of healthcare.gov. how are we going to fix it. but the tone was remarkable. it is a acknowledgment that this is the law of the land and we have to improve it. and even though all of my republican colleagues opposed the law, their questions had an underlying primis and this is the law and they will hold the things that administration is accountable for and rightly so. >> congressman, in addition to the tech california glitches that you admitted to. democrats and kathleen sebelius said they blew. it but the president blew it. he said if you like your health care plan you keep it. the washington post awarded him four pinnochios and he knew it was not true before he continued if you like it. you keep. it millions of people are kicked off their insurance plan. is there a lingering credibility problem as a result of that promise? >> there is for folks that are opposed to the law. and here is the explanation. there are standards that apply to insurance policys that you and i buy. there were none before and a lot of americans were ripped
over sold and acknowledged the healthcare.gov website is a mess. >> look, there is no denying it. right now, the website is too slow. too many people have gotten stuck and i'm not happy about it. and neither are a lot of americans who need healthcare and they are trying to figure out how they can sign up as quickly as possible. so there is no excuse for it. and i take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed asap. we are working overtime to improve it every day. >> well, that was only part of what he said. request senior white house correspondent jim acosta joins us with details. jim, the white house originally built the speech as a romney comparison, clearly a chance for the president to do damage control. >> that's right, anderson. you heard the president talk a bit today about the first month of that rollout of the health care plan, 100 people signed up and trying to make the case this is similar to what is happening with the obama care law. this is about damage control. you heard the president say earlier today he takes responsibility and will make sure it getsed fixed. you
. the problems with healthcare.gov are unfortunate and we should investigate them and then every american will have access to affordable health insurance. thank you, mr. chairman. >> before we swear in secretary sebelius, i want to clarify energy and commerce committee practice for swearing in of witnesses. the committee typically has two types of hearings. oversight hearings and hearings that focus on legislation and policy. secretary sebelius, for example, has testified previously before our committee to discuss issues relating to hhs budget or other policy matters. as is the case with all policy witnesses, secretary sebelius was not required to take an oath prior to testifying. today's hearing is different. it's an oversight hearing. it is a long standing committee practice to swear in all witnesses at oversight hearings whether they are private citizens or cabinet secretaries. >> mr. chairman, i thank you for your comments. i just want to join you in simply explaining that swearing in of the witness before an oversight committee hearing has always been under oath. that is a standard p
we are now five weeks into enrollment and the news seems to get worse by the day. healthcare.gov was down last night at 5:00 p.m.. it alsos of down on monday and it crashed last weekend. and even this morning when we attempted to view the site before the hearing, we were hit with an error message. but this is more than just a website problem. that was supposed to be the easy part, remember? americans were assured that their experience would be similar to other onlean transactions like purchasing a flight or ordering a pizza and that their sensitive personal information would always be secure. but after more than three years to prepare, malfunctions have become the norm and the administration has pivoted from saying they're on track to setting a new target date of november 30th. and for those few americans who have successfully applied, the website glitches become provider glitches come january 1st? americans are scared and frustrated. and this situation should rise above politics. many folks at home have spent hours or even days trying to sign up. they continue to take time a

of healthcare.gov. so let me say directly to these americans, you deserve better. i apologize. i'm accountable to you for fixing these problems, and i'm committed to earning your confidence back by fixing the site. >> right now on "andrea mitchell reports," taking the blame. hhs secretary kathleen sebelius in the hot seat today, acknowledging the rollout is, in her words, a debacle, but facing new questions now about whether the website exposes millions of americans to a security risk of their personal data. >> don't you think you have the obligation to tell the american people that we're going to put you in this system, but beware, your information is likely to be vulnerable. would you commit today, secretary, to shut down the system and do an end-to-end security test? >> no, sir. if you read the memo -- >> oh, i have read it. >> it goes on to say that weekly testing of devices, including interface testing daily, weekly, scans are going on. this is a temporary -- >> that's not what the memo says, number one. number two, the contractors will tell you it's not happening. >> mr. chairman, point
accurate, all right. that it is, once it gets all sorted out, going to be a panacea on the healthcare front. and you say? >> well, i was shocked, frankly, that the president, after we heard dozens of letters on the hill today, the congressionals were asking sebelius questions, we heard all these letters from constituents about how their rates are skyrocketing and, yet, the president is sticking with the line that their rates are going to be lower. their premiums are going to be lower. he is digging. in and on the question about whether you are going to lose your insurance. i thought he dug. in he almost the president went out there and said you can keep your insurance policy even though in 2010 the regulations made it clear that 40 to 62% of people with -- who were self-insured were going it lose. >> did he read that? i doubt it. >> the president understands the plan and he knows that in order for enough people to go into the obama care exchanges, they are going to have to lose their current insurance. he had to have understood that's the only way it's sustainable. i have to say i think it
, there's been user problem after user problem after user problem. regarding healthcare.gov, your dputty administrator for consumer information, gary cohen, testified one month ago, where we are sitting, that cms has worked hard to test the infrastructure that will allow americans to enroll in coverage confidently and simply and securely, end quote. and yet according to forbes, and the wall street journal, you told them that you need five years of construction and one year of testing. the program crashed and burned at least three times and the user is still having problems. it's been down the whole time you've been testifying. the system is down at this moment. my question, ma'am is very simple. when did you know these changes were going down? a month, a day, a quarter? and did you tell the president what you knew? >> sir, i was informed that we were ready to launch on october 1st and the contractors who we had as our private partners told us and told this committee that they had never suggested the delay and that is accurate. our cms team felt we were ready to go. i told the president t

. the lead contractor on healthcare.gov, warned her, warned hhs, the holt and human services website was not ready to go. so what under after that is one of the big questions that we expect kathleen sebellius will get. chris stirewalt joins me right now. that is the big issue, what did you know and when did you know it and why didn't you delay? >> there is another overarching question related to that business, why did it take so long and cost so much to be so bad? that doesn't quite make sense. they had more than three years. they had more than $300 million and it's a total disaster. so why is that? but if you think about her strategy in this, she refused to come last week. instead went out on a campaign tour, angry campaign tour, accusing republicans, don't you dare and by goodness, by gollly, thinking by the time she got back she would have better answers for the folks. instead what happened while she was gone gone it came out the law was worst than she thought. martha: there were people who want me to resign. i don't work for them. i don't work for those people. now all the people
is on the way to fix the federal government's healthcare website. michael dickerson a google engineer has been recruited to address numerous problems plaguing healthcare.gov. software companies oracle and red hat will also take part in the effort. >>> newly released documents show only 6 people successfully enrolled through healthcare.gov in its first day of operation. only 248 had enrolled by the end of the second day. these figures don't include those who enrolled on various state websites. the documents are based on meetings at an obama administration war room obtained by congressman darrell issa, a republican from southern california. >>> every year millions of people donate their blood for free. but wait until you see what christin ayers discovered happens to those free donations. it's a story you will only see right here on kpix 5. >>> reporter: watson gives blood to help her community. >> saving a life is priceless. >> reporter: but her donation doesn't stay local or priceless for long. at blood banks like this one that the red cross runs in oakland, blood gets separated into products,
